Encompassing 1,350 miles of coastline on the Atlantic coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and many barrier islands, Florida is beach heaven. Almost every part of the state has at least a piece of beach where dogs are allowed, although on many they must be on a leash. Some beaches have a fenced area where dogs can run, and there are also some magnificent beaches where dogs can splash and roam off leash with their owners and truly enjoy freedom. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Hours/availability may have changed.

Located in Fort Myers, between the Lovers Key State Park entrance and the New Pass Bridge, is Dog Beach Park, one of the most beautiful dog beaches in Florida and completely free of charge. Dogs are allowed to run off-leash in the sand and splash in the water while their humans are relaxing in the sand. There is a doggy shower for rinsing sand off, but there are no other facilities and the bathroom is portable. No alcohol or glass containers are permitted on the beach. The owners are responsible for cleaning after their pets. If you want to fish from the shore while your dog is having fun, you need to apply for license.

Located in Islamorada, on Lower Matecumbe Key between Key Largo and Key West and hidden discreetly under an overpass, is Anne’s Beach, one of the very few public beaches in the Keys. The beach has two free but tiny parking lots, a large, shallow swimming area, shaded picnic tables, and bathroom facilities. The beach is wonderful for wading and strolling but is too shallow for swimming. The best news: The beach is pet-friendly and dogs love getting soaked and running around in the sand. The beach is quiet and secluded and protected from waves, perfect for a day in the sun, surrounded by mangroves. The owners are responsible for cleaning after their pooches.

Flagler Beach is a small town on the Atlantic coast of Florida, between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.

The part of the beach north of N. 10th street and south of S. 10th street is considered a dog beach, but the dogs have to be on an 8-foot leash. There are no facilities, no water, and no doggy bags, so it is up to the owners to provide water for their pets and to clean up after them.

There are a few picnic benches and tables as well as water and restrooms. The dunes along the beach are a habitat for delicate plant life and should not be disturbed; dogs and their owners should respect the signs to stay off the dunes. The owners should also make sure they clean up after their dog and leave the beach as beautiful and clean as they found it.
